Indiana Jones. Lara Croft. Jack Sparrow. Those are legendary names of legendary treasure hunters. They have lives filled with excitement, adventure, and sometimes a lot of stress, but we would happily trade our lives for the lives of one of them any day of the week.

What if I told you you could live the life of a treasure hunter and still go home to your family every night? What if you could turn treasure hunting into a profitable side hustle? Anything is possible in the exciting world of dumpster diving!

Dumpster diving doesn't sound luxurious and is not what you see in the movies. It's gross, smelly, and dirty, but it can be profitable if you find the right dumpster. But before you start, you have to understand the legalities, or you could end up broke and in jail.

The first thing you should know is that Idaho has no laws prohibiting dumpster diving. Still, it can be considered trespassing because dumpsters are often on private property. Sometimes, you need to get permission first. You must also avoid any dumpster behind a fence or gate marked with a "No Trespassing" sign.

Now that you know the rules, your hunt can begin. The feeling of finding something valuable can only be compared to hitting the game-winning home run, the winning basket at the buzzer, or landing the knockout punch on the champ.

Remember, you're in a dumpster, so some of the most valuable items might not look so valuable when they're dirty. But after a little cleaning or minor repair, they're ready to sell. Without having much, if any, overhead, these items are pure profit. eBay, Mercari, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace are all places where you can make great side money when you find the right stuff.

Regardless of the income that you generate, this is also about the adventure and the thrill of the hunt. Just remember to stick to the laws.
